Acupuncture: The Perfect Relief for Depression

Depression is a very drastic disorder and usually comes with both physical and psychological symptoms which affect the daily routine of the person. The symptoms of depression are varied but usually comprise of crying spells, poor sleeping, stress, worry, anxiety, stomach problems, concentration problems, lack of interest, etc. In acute cases, individuals lose hope in their lives and commit suicide to end their misery.

The treatment for depression as per modern medicine is through psychotherapy. The use of anti-depressant drugs aids in treating the particular symptoms that the person suffers from but the side effects of the medication can out way the benefits. With this form of treatment you are just managing the symptoms and you can expect to be on the medication for the rest of your life. However, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats depression in a whole different light. This therapy does not consider depression as an illness but as a symptom. The treatment that is involved is to make the individual free of the symptoms that are affecting their day to day life. Acupuncture is an important medium through which the imbalance in the body can be restored to normal and thus it has evolved to be an effective approach for depression treatment.

There have been several studies that have been conducted around the world on the treatment of depression using acupuncture and each of them confirm that this approach is holistic and positive for the depressed individuals and its effect is found to be relatively higher when used in combination with Chinese herbal formulas and psychotherapy. Acupuncture consists of inserting very fine needles at specific points on our body. This is done in an attempt to help in enhancing the Qi or energy flow in our body. Acupuncture aids in reducing and finally eliminating the chemical imbalance in the body which causes depression. This treatment stimulates the central nervous system and helps in increasing the production of the naturally occurring chemicals. In this manner, the Qi inside our body can be restored to normal which in turn will bring about the physical, mental and emotional balance to our body.

The treatments adopted by us in this Clinic helps to keep the mind and body focused and treats the physical and mental symptoms simultaneously. There are no drug side effects in this line of treatment. In fact, in acupuncture, the use of medications is drastically less compared to that of western medicine. When we are treating depression in the clinic we like to add Chinese herbal formulas as part of the treatments as they help to speed up the healing process.

Hormones govern our body and play a pivotal role in bringing about the right balance. Acupuncture aids by bringing about hormonal balance and hence it is the perfect answer for the treatment of depression. It enhances the general well-being of our body, enriches sleeping habits and makes us feel positive about life. It believes in enhancing the energy in our body by indulging in regular exercise. TCM offers us a new equation to life and helps us to see our life in a positive light. In fact, we find it easier to deal with the problems in our life and accept changes in a positive way. In all, it can be rightly concluded that the effective treatment of depression is possible only through TCM.
